    No. It had 3 moderators and the owner/admins who were a gay couple from one of the Nordic/Scandinavian countries (I forget which) who were seldom seen. It was a huge time/joy suck. Besides the posters being annoying (mostly a handful that were full time babies), they had a 1 thread per news story rule so I was spending hours a day just merging threads because the same full time babies felt "Hey, I will create my own with my own talking point" and then cry to me about whose thread became the master thread despite being told repeatedly first in time wins.

    I think it is meaner but I think that's because our society is meaner than it was 10 years and far less tolerant than it was 20 years ago. I also think there are some other things happening but this is enough to kick it off.
    I don't think it's gotten meaner. I think it's the same. What's changed is millennial's have gotten older and we all know what pussies they are.

    I miss the old days of JPP when the best part was everyone making fun of you and laughing at you....oh wait...that hasn't changed.

    Considering the lengths the schools went to to fuck with their heads I'm shocked they're as normal as they are.
